Dan McLaughlan, 30 - Electrician, Wellington
Positive, happy, laughs a lot, reliable and trustworthy.
Someone who is cute, with a nice smile.
Laziness, someone who isn't willing to try new things, a person who is covered in tattoos or anyone who has already started a family with someone else.
I've tried other dating avenues over the years and haven't clicked with anyone. I didn't expect to get through, but I thought, "What have I got to lose?"
Keep your head up and be yourself.
Julia Malley, 32 - Account Manager, Christchurch
Bubbly, passionate, driven, extroverted, caring, thoughtful and emotionally intelligent.
Someone smart, kind and passionate, who knows how to show empathy, has a good sense of humour and, most importantly, loves me for who I am.
Yes, I've had two healthy long-term relationships. One was French and one was American. Both ended on good terms.
Surprised them by flying halfway across the world.
Dave McClelland, 44 - Entrepreneur, Dunedin
Hilarious, generous, caring, confident and honest.
Someone who smiles with their eyes, and is funny, energetic, driven, passionate and loyal.
A liar who's lazy, arrogant, high-maintenance and selfish.
It's an amazing opportunity to meet the woman of my dreams and share a memorable experience.
Flown her in a helicopter for lunch.
Monique Lee, 25 - Teacher, Christchurch
Effervescent, bubbly, a silly sausage, outgoing and fun.
Someone who deeply cares about his friends and family – and hopefully his partner too! I'm hoping for a cutie with a warm smile, who's taller than me and around my age.
My friends suggested I'd be perfect for it. I love an adventure and I'm quite bored of the whole dating game. I want to settle down with someone who's ready to get married through such a novel and exciting bonding experience.
I can tap dance – not very well, but passable!
Fraser Pearce, 27 - Policy Analyst, Wellington
A massive goofball who's loyal, understanding and compassionate.
Someone who makes me a better person, with a great smile, decent eyebrows and curves in all the right places. Preferably not too short.
I've had family members suffer from significant health problems from weight-related issues, so that's something less attractive to me.
Probably booking and planning an entire holiday to Thailand and Cambodia.
Ottie Schwartz, 32 - Promotions Manager, Christchurch
Crazy and beautiful in equal amounts.
Black humour, honesty, independence and adventure. The more tattoos, the merrier. He should have a sense of style and a wild look in his eyes.
Bad breath and the wrong shoes.
Peer pressure, a lust for adventure and true love, of course!
Romance is an attitude – it's for every day.
I make people laugh – mostly at me!
Samuel Levi, 25 - Fashion Influencer, Auckland
I'm very giving, the life of the party and wise beyond my years.
Someone who is not afraid to express their feelings, good or bad. Key qualities are a great sense of humour and a love of adventure. I'm looking for someone with a bit of facial hair, a few tattoos and an inviting smile.
No fashion style, dirty shoes and a loud, annoying laugh. Someone who doesn't keep physically fit or eats a lot of junk food. Someone who has a rude attitude or negative outlook on life. Someone who hates travel.
Ksenia Smorodinova, 33 - Sales Manager, Auckland
Funny, bubbly and positive.
Someone who is loving, considerate and caring. He should be tall, with a good physique – not skinny – and he needs to have a nice smile.
A short man with bad teeth and bad skin. Someone who's vulgar, mean, sarcastic, up themselves, stingy or selfish.
Made dinner, got him a present and written nice words in a card.
Go for it!
Gareth Noble, 26 - Apprentice Barber, Cromwell
Cheeky, confident, fun and friendly.
Someone relaxed but adventurous, with a big smile and beautiful eyes. A nice body would be a plus, but a happy, positive person would be amazing.
I'm at a place where I'm very happy and I'd like to have someone to share that with.
I believe in lust at first sight and that can be built into love.
Bought them flowers, taken them out for dinner and treated them right.
Yuki Sato, 31 - Hairdresser, Christchurch
Sunshine, happy, positive, ambitious and "crasian" – crazy Asian!
Tall and handsome, plus a full head of hair.
Rudeness, laziness, bad haircut, bad teeth and white socks.
One of my clients told me to. I've failed many times and thought expert help could be just what I need.
If this doesn't work out, you can laugh about it when you're older.
I can speak English so well after three beers!
Wayne McIntosh, 32 - Helicopter Engineer, Taranaki
Legend! And they'd probably call me a dickhead, but then say I love to have fun.
Someone honest, genuine, happy, fun and adventurous.
A boring personality – there's got to be substance. Also if they're an Auckland Blues supporter.
It was the right time and I was in the right place mentally.
Probably just romantic weekends away, wining and dining them.
Tayler Morgan, 29 - Apprentice Electrician, Christchurch
Loving, confident, strong-minded, caring and hard-working.
Someone good-looking and family-oriented, who cares for others and themselves, and isn't too shy to get down and dirty! Nice hair, an amazing smile and stunning eyes.
Bad personal hygiene, a bad attitude or someone who's too skinny or overweight. I don't like piercings, especially facial ones.
I once made 12 napkin roses – it's the thought that counts!
